How to Restore Gridlines in Excel 2003


In Microsoft Office Excel 2003, you can view or hide spreadsheet gridlines to suit your needs. You can enable or disable gridline view at any time, and doing so will not affect your data and equations. "Gridlines" are the ubiquitous light grey cell lines apparent in all Excel spreadsheets, not the user-created border lines that appear when you print the documents.

  • Click "Tools" in the menu bar.

  • Select "Options."

  • Click on the "View" tab, then check the "Gridlines" box.

  • Save your document.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you also want your spreadsheet to print with Excel's built-in gridlines (a big time saver), click on "File," "Page Setup," "Sheet" and then check the "Gridlines" box.
